My Pseudosphere

















My first stab at a Hyperbolic Plane: Started with some self-dyed patterned yarn...Crocheted a circle...and started increasing...it is about five inches wide...hard to believe but the outside edge is over twelve feet long...reminds me a bit of coral...but more like this.
